seems one thing most people can agree on is that public funding or public education desperately needs funding. how to get it? that's where the controversy comes in. let's take a closer look at what each measure is. prop 30 is a 7-year plan. it would raise income tax for californians making $250,000 or more a year. by 3%. it would also raise the sales tax by a quarter percent. the money would be used to fund k-12 and higher education. public safety programs and the remainor hoping to balance the state budget. prop 38 backed by civil rights attorney molly must knower will last 12 years and increase personal income taxes on a sliding scale. the money would be almost exclusively used for k-12 education. >> if you peel back the rhetoric. if you strip away the arguments, they're not that much different. the only difference is that the initiative lasts for a shorter period of time and it does not raise the income taxes of everyone. whereas munger's will last for a longer period of time and will raise taxes on almost everyone in california. >>> as the election nears, the supporters have been
